Pumpkin Chocolate Swirl Bread

Here’s your homework for the day.  Go into your recipe collections and find all the pumpkin spice cake recipes that you have.  Gather them together and throw them the F away…because this Pumpkin Chocolate Swirl Bread is a legit game changer.

swirl-bread

Soft and delicious, this pumpkin bread is great for breakfast or dessert.  You can add a sweet cream cheese glaze on top for added richness, or just serve it as is because it’s just that good.

Pumpkin Chocolate Swirl Bread

Ingredients:

  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • 1¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter, room temperature
  • 1¼ cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 cup canned pureed pumpkin
  • ½ cup bittersweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa or hot cocoa mix (either one will work! It’s mostly for color)

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Coat a 9 in. loaf pan with non-stick spray.  Set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Mix together and set aside.

In another large bowl, combine butter and sugar.  Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy.  If your butter is room temp, you can also beat with a whisk by hand, which is what I prefer…but to each his own!  Add eggs, one at a time, and vanilla, beating well until combined.

Alternate adding flour mixture and milk, starting and ending with flour, and mixing until everything is just combined.  Fold in the pumpkin.

Divide batter in half.  Add melted chocolate and cocoa powder to one portion.  Mix to combine.

Alternate adding pumpkin and chocolate batter to prepared pan.  Using a knife, swirl batters together.

Bake 55 to 60 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.  Let cool completely, then remove from pan.

Your kitchen will smell amazing and your stomach will thank me.  And you’re welcome.

If you want to make a cream cheese glaze, you can combine 2 tablespoons softened cream cheese with ½ cup confectioners’ sugar and ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract.  Add 1 teaspoon milk, and continue adding milk little by little until you achieve the right consistency.

Honey and Peanut Butter Energy Bars

I always seem to be on the move…and though I often fail, I try to pack my purse with healthy snacks.  Energy bars, fruit, or cheese sticks are my go-to’s…but those energy bars and power bars are often packed with tons of sugar and carbs and may not be as healthy as they seem…

So I’ve decided to start making my own!

energy-bars

Packed with protein and natural sugars for a burst of energy, these Honey and Peanut Butter Energy Bars actually taste delicious and are super filling.  The addition of dates helps give these bars a great chewy texture, and they’ll last a good 2 weeks in the fridge.

One batch will make about 8 large bars or 10-12 smaller bars.  I go smaller with these because they are filling, but they are great for breakfast on the go or a snack before a workout.

Honey and Peanut Butter Energy Bars

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 10 dates, pitted
  • 1 cup peanut butter (the drippy kind works best)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Instructions:

Prep an 8 in. or 9 in. square pan with parchment paper, letting excess paper hang over edges.  If you don’t have parchment paper, you can also spray the pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Place rolled oats in food processor and process on high for about 1 minute, or until oats have been turned into oat flour.  Remove and set aside.

Combine the dates, peanut butter, honey, vanilla extract, protein powder, salt, and walnuts in food processor and pulse a few times to chop up the dates.  Add the oat flour and process until well combined.  Pour into prepared pan and press into cake pan.  Top with chocolate chips, if desired.

Place in freezer for 30 to 60 minutes to set.  Remove and cut into bars.  Store in fridge in plastic bags for up to 2 weeks.

Baked Oatmeal Bars Recipe

Sometimes mornings are hard…

 morning mondays routine dexters laboratory GIF

Getting up, getting ready, getting dressed, making breakfast, AND making lunch…that’s a lot to handle in the short span between the alarm and the start of work…and that’s why I’m loving these make-ahead breakfast bars.

baked-oatmeal-bars

Made up of oatmeal, fruit, and chocolate for a little something sweet, these Baked Oatmeal Bars are great for a healthy grab n’ go breakfast.

I used strawberries, blueberries, and bananas in these bars, but you could easily add raspberries or blackberries instead.  Play around with adding your favorite oatmeal ingredients (I’m definitely trying pumpkin pie spice and cranberries in the fall!) to update and improve the recipe!

*One batch made 12 bars for me and they’ll keep in the fridge for about a week.

You can find this recipe at Diary of a Debutante.

30 Classic Recipes You Need in Your Wheelhouse

I think it’s fair to say that everyone has a chocolate chip cookie recipe or a pancakes recipe tucked away in their recipe binder.  Maybe it was mom’s or grandma’s…or maybe it’s just a recipe from Pinterest that ACTUALLY WORKED.  Regardless of where it came from, having a few classic recipes in your wheelhouse is never a bad idea.

Though I love cookbooks and collecting recipes, I actually really like to be creative in the kitchen.  A dash of something here, a sprinkle there…you never know what just might work!

I know this can be stressful for some folks…but seriously, if you have the staples down pat, you really can have fun adding in different textures and flavors…I mean the worst thing that happens is you just order Chinese, right?

So, as my mother would say, “put on your big girl pants!”.  These classic recipes are great to have in your back pocket in case you find yourself entertaining a crowd or needing to cook up a last-minute meal.
